Love is Weakness
Sometimes people say prayer is a confession of one's own unworthiness and weakness.
Maybe it's true, maybe it's not.
Love is weakness and there is no denying it. It's not a bad thing, maybe it is.
Sometimes life has you trapped in a cage that you can't get out of. All you want to do is go away, fly away, and float away somewhere safe like Heaven. There's always going to be that one person in your life that you look up to and you consider them as your role model or you're everything. It could be your spouse, your child, your boyfriend or girlfriend. Maybe simply a family pet.
It is impossible to live in this world without having love in some point of our lives. God created us to love and be kind to one another. It's funny though, because most of the time we're not really loving and we're not really kind to one another. This world is a restless game and all we're doing is trying to win it. Life is scary, love is scary, everything in this earth is scary. We're just hanging on hope by a thread, using the last of our strengths on such little things. Crying over pointless situations.
It is okay to cry. Sometimes you have to let it all out.Pour out your emotions.You don't have to keep everything bottled up in your chest 24/7 it's okay to say that you're not ok. It's okay to go see a therapist or counselor. It's okay to have opinions. It’s Okay to have feelings. It’s what makes us human.
We all have our own little problems. We all have situations that we deal with every single day of our lives. We all think we have unfair lives.
Every single day there's always somebody that you're trying to impress. You run the extra mile just so you make sure that they think you're not a slacker. Every day you're hoping that they will accept you but they never ever do. You're always trying to act a different way each time you're around them because you want them to think that you are “cool”. You don't have to try so hard just be yourself and if they don't accept you then they are missing out on an amazing person. I am sure of it.
There are people who will judge you in the future or who judge you even now.
Someday you will have kids that won't appreciate you as much as they should. There will be a day when people just don't look up to you and think of you as another worthless person to them.
Sometimes we asked ourselves, “Why did the Lord even bother to make me and put me on this Earth if my life was just going to be filled with pain?”
Sometimes we ask ourselves, “ Is this even necessary?”
Life is hard but you just have to work your way through it hoping that maybe today will be a lot easier, maybe today will be a lot better, maybe today will be a day where you will not hurt and you will be happy and you won't feel depressed and you won't feel sad and alone, maybe it's a day they will accept you, maybe today there will be no problems, maybe today will not be filled with pain. Maybe today my life will seem fair.
It's okay to have hopes and dreams. It's okay to feel like this and think like this. You're not alone you never were because the Lord is with you and the Lord was standing right by your side the whole entire time you just didn't know it because the lights were off but now that they are on you can see that he was with you through it all.
If you are in dark place you are not alone and you never were. Everything that has happened in your life happened for a reason and one day it will all make sense.
With lots of love,
